People who look through fences

Why are there people who live in shadows
and who live to look through fences-
How do I get away from everything the same-
while some would live to crawl home.
I do not
I refuse to believe we share the same earth
that we live on the same capacity for pain.
I’m so sorry, I feel as though I’ve failed you strangers.
In this thought I create borders,
thinking there are so many sad borders in the world.
So many fences which fingers stretch through, which
are reinforced by humans to keep humans out
.
In this thought I create borders, thinking that
we are different we are different.
In making them a faraway sadness
I have put myself on the other side of the fence.

““`The earth may cry but I hear human voices.
